Upset over Drew Garrett’s (soon to be ex-Michael, General Hospital) firing? You are not alone! Maurice Benard (Sonny) shares in the fan’s displeasure over the young standout’s departure. ABC Soaps In Depth reveals Benard was shocked to learn that his onscreen son was getting a face change much like Ingo Rademacher and Laura Wright both previously revealed on their respective Twitter accounts. Maurice also tells SID he was not made aware of the change before it happened, but he plans to carry on.
As for the shake-up coming at a time when GH is clearly at a high, with important story for Sonny and Michael, Benard says he’ll have no problem carrying on with the plot. “Sometimes,” he says, “you have to put personal feelings aside.”
